The bathroom is arguably one of the most popular sections of a residence to remodel. Zillow reported that bathroom remodels were the second most popular home improvement project in 2021 after interior paint jobs. According to Global Market Insights, the North American bathroom remodeling industry is projected to experience a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4% from 2021 to 2027. There are multiple aspects to consider when taking up such a venture, with the particular approach adopted depending on the primary objectives of the homeowner.
Some of the top trends in Bathroom Remodeling upgrades include:
A study published by The Independent reported that 57% of the respondents that took part in their survey stated that they would prefer a shower over a tub when it came to bathroom options. This has been a growing trend in recent years because of several reasons, the leading factors being the potential expenses involved and increased awareness regarding environmental conservation. Lifestyles have also played a valid role in this option, as many people have found it hard to find the time to enjoy a relaxing soak in a tub, and would rather take a quick 5 to 10-minute shower because of their busy schedule. However, individuals leaning towards shower solutions can still enhance the experience with a few upgrades in this sector. One of the leading trends that have emerged is the installation of steam showers. As the name suggests, these are typically steam rooms that come with the features of a shower cubicle. Contractors install a humidifying steam generator to produce water vapor directed toward an individual. This option offers a great spa-like experience and the good news is the generator can be added to a standard shower, allowing users to pick and choose their preference on a day-to-day basis.
Lighting has always been an important feature in bathrooms as it enhances the safety levels available in this region. Orthodox lighting has recently been integrated with decorative alternatives to enhance the ambiance of the area. It should be noted that decorative lighting should never fully replace orthodox lighting but rather should be installed in specific sections of the bathroom that don’t require a lot of illumination. Areas such as the shower cubicle and bathtub, however, should always have proper lighting for safety purposes. There are multiple options to choose from when it comes to vanity lighting, and the upgrades involved will depend on elements such as the available budget and personal taste and preferences. LED lights are a great option for individuals looking to kill two birds with one stone. Ambient lighting can be accomplished by installing dimmer bulbs and varying the colors. Smart lighting has also come to the forefront in this category, allowing individuals to control aspects such as the colors and the brightness levels available. Placement of the fixtures can also impact the overall backdrop of the room when it comes to lighting. Installing fixtures vertically on the walls or recessed into the ceiling, for example, can greatly enhance the aesthetic levels.
